A prayer for this week:
Almighty God, in many places, school begins this week. We pray for all those who are first starting school, those who are returning, those who lead, teach, administrate, and work with youth and adults to help them learn, and those who have left familiar surroundings to go to colleges, universities, etc. May this be a safe year for all, with much joy and growth. Lord, we are also mindful of those for whom education is not available. Help us to share our gifts so that others may have opportunity to know the joy of learning and being educated. Amen.
